Moss's Object d'ObsessionIn this roundup: Artworks 2.4 Summer Sale, RiscCAD Pro 10b3, Spellings.net revamps monitor lineup, Repton T-Shirts, Bookmaker 2.09.

ArtWorks 2.4 Summer Sale
The full version of ArtWorks 2.4 can be had for 139 (EUR195) - a saving of 30 quid - or save 19 (EUR30) when upgrading from ArtWorks 1.7 for 110 (EUR145)

RiscCAD Pro 10b3
RiscCAD Professional - the popular and professional 2D CAD - has reached Release 10 beta 3. Improvements include font handling (255 outline fonts) and better Draw import. Prices start from 20 quid, and they're looking for v9 users to help beta test.

Spellings.net revamps monitor lineup
Their lineup now has 20 LCDs, including panels with built in TV tuners, USB hubs, speakers, 360degree rotatable heads, and response times as low as 3ms. 19" LCDs are available for under 225UKP and 17"s under 180UKP. All LCDs are supplied with a suitable MDF file for RISC OS. There are also special discounted bundles available with Geminus for IYONIX pc owners who wish to use multiple screens or use the screen rotation features.

Repton T-ShirtRepton official merchandise available on eBay
It's a new line of official stuff, which is not bad for a 20-year-old game. Yay to PC and mobile phone re-writes. But currently you have to search for stuff on eBay, so here's hoping someone at least find Cafe Press or Zazzle soon.
The T-Shirt is 14.95 and RISC OS users get p&p for just 5p!
